TaylorMade Golf Clubs: What's New For 2018?

For 2018 TaylorMade has launched an entire new ‘M’ family, an extension to its instantly recognisable Spider Tour putter line, as well as other little bits for us to get our teeth into. It can be intimidating and almost impossible to digest all of it so we’ve broken it down, and given you the headlines on each of the models.


Drivers

We’ll start with the driver line up – the TaylorMade M3 and M4. They both feature new technology called Twist Face and a Hammerhead slot. If you want to be able to adjust your CG location via a new and improved Y-Track system then you’re going to be looking out for the M3. If you trust the engineers at TaylorMade to set your driver up for max distance and forgiveness then the M4 is for you.

The M3 also comes in a 440cc version – slightly smaller and deeper for the better player – while the M4 also comes in a D-Type – featuring draw weighting to help fight a fade or slice off the tee.

As you’d expect there are complimentary M3 and M4 fairway woods and Rescue clubs too.

Fairway Woods

The new TaylorMade M3 fairway continues the adjustability theme. It has a 29-gram weight in a single track which runs from heel-to-toe. It also features carbon crown with the contrasting alignment aid and steel body for a super low CG location.

The new TaylorMade M4 fairway by contrast has a larger head, new and improved speed pocket for increased ball speed, and an internal split weight for forgiveness instead of an adjustable weight track. Like the driver, the M4 fairway wood is built for raw power. There's also a M4 Tour fairway which is 15cc smaller than the standard with a forward CG location for a more penetrating trajectory.

Rescue / Hybrids

Like the fairway woods the M3 hybrid is more compact, and features an adjustable weight track with 30-grams of weight that can be moved heel-to-toe. It is also loft adjustable. For the first time in a hybrid from TaylorMade it features the same silver and black alignment aid on the crown.

The M4 Rescue is more forgiving with a bigger head and is non-adjustable.

It’s simply a choice between the adjustability of the M3 and the raw power of the M4.

Irons

TaylorMade has 7 sets of irons in its 2018 line up which are broadly split into ‘P Series’ or ‘M Family’.

The P730 is a 73mm straight blade designed for elite and Tour players. It is made from a single piece of 1025 carbon steel which undergoes a five-step forging process before being milled to precise tolerances. The P750 is a 75mm length forged blade with a small cavity back design to add a little bit of forgiveness over the P730. The P770 has a slightly bigger head and thicker top-line but it still a compact blade style head for the better player.

The P790 is unlike the other three in the ‘P’ series. It is billed as a forged distance iron for better players. From 3 to 7-iron the P790 features speed pocket technology. Their hollow construction is then filled with Speed Foam which produces much better COR or trampoline off the face numbers – basically more bang for your buck.

As we move into the more forgiving irons from TaylorMade we move into the ‘M Family’. First up is the new M3 iron. It’s a cast cavity back iron for low and mid handicap players. There is also a new M4 iron which is built for huge distance and forgiveness. The M4 irons are big and chunky and feature stronger lofts than the M3 and are aimed at the mid to high handicapper.

Finally, there’s the M CGB irons. If you to need even more forgiveness these are the irons for you. They feature all the game improvement and easy to hit technology you could wish for and are designed to increase your enjoyment of the game.

Wedges

TaylorMade are sticking by their Milled Grind wedge from 2017 with line extensions in the form of Bronze and Black finishes. Both new colours are available in the High, Low, or Standard bounce options.

There will also be a high toe wedge for 2018 after successful prototypes found their way into the bags of Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose on Tour. The high toe wedge will give more hitting area when the face is splayed open or you’re hitting from heavy rough when the club could slip under the ball.

Putters

TaylorMade has a comprehensive selection of TP Collection and Spider Tour putters. Both are available in a range of colours, head shapes, and hosel designs. Your main decision is going to be based around stability levels required. Confident in your stroke? Then head over to the TP Collection for some classic shapes designed for the connoisseurs. Or, if you need a bit more stability, and a putter you can trust, then the Spider Tour line is for you. All the weight is back in the corners to keep the putter as stable as possible through your stroke.

The 2018 range from TaylorMade has something for every golfer out there. If you want any more information on any of the clubs above then head on over to their respective model pages for technology descriptions, videos, and more.
